Actor Jack Thompson reads '63 not out'

Phillip Hughes’ death has touched people from every strata and sphere of Australia society, while scores of famous Australians have paid tribute to the little left-hander from Macksville that was so tragically taken less than two weeks ago.

Revered actor Jack Thompson’s reading of the brilliant poem ‘63 not out’, written by cricket.com.au writer Adam Burnett, must rank as one of the most special.

Thompson, best known for his role in the classic The Man from Snowy River, jumped at the chance to help honour Hughes and recorded his touching reading of the poem last week.
